"With dismay my husband is insisting I sell my 2008 Tribute with slightly over 205,000 miles. This old girl has been more reliable and required less maintenance than the 2 Honda CRV's I had before her. I gave her synthetic oil just like the CRV's and still not a tick to be heard. My Tribute had so many cup holders and storage compartments which made my mobile office more secure. I am sure she could have made it to 300,000 miles with me but got to keep the hubby from worrying about me on the road.
Only bad remark-- could you please make it easier to change the head lamps, my gosh I am a woman and only a gorilla can get to or change those!"
"I really like this car. I have enjoyed driving it. it is comfortable and drives well and is quite roomy. The stereo sound is quite good. I do wish that it had more compartments for storing things like my tissues. I would like to have had running boards to aid with getting into the vehicle because it is a little high, but I have gotten used to it. Also, a handle for the trunk would have been nice. The controls would be easier to manipulate without glancing if the knobs were against a different colored background."
Pros: "never had engine trouble other than maintaining"
Cons: "glove compartment could be bigger"

"in May 2010, we had a big thunderstorm that landed a tree on our windshield while parked on our apartment lot. Geico Insurance did a good job of repairing the windshield, and painted some scratches. They also guaranteed the repairs for the life of the car. we have that paperwork."
